    Woo! First Review!!!
    Ok, so you're probably wondering if this show is worth your time :/ At first glance, it can seem really cheesy, and cliched. Well, that's exactly what I thought as well.

    This show turns out to be one of the more interesting shows that are currently on air at this time. The plot consists of three children who grew up together, and their role in the holy war against the forces of evil, lead by ...

    Intriguing, Great Time!
    I have seen a previous Saint Seiya, and originally I thought this was just a remake, though the story seams to be a continuation of a previous battle I really am enjoying how they worked the characters together. Many seam to be intertwined without knowing it. The Mythological twist heightens the suspense and adds to the enjoyment. I recommend this show to anyone who is looking for a mixture of ...

    First Review, but a great anime
    So, I have always been into Mythology. It is one of my favorite fields of study. The concept of Saints combined with the Greek Gods Hades and Athena is amazing to me. Not to mention using constellations to inspire the cloths for the saints. Its a bit complex and it took a few episodes to warm up but this is a great series.

  • saint seiya is really exciting to watch :)
    the overall, i think, is really good, especially since the enemies were childhood friends and really cared for each other.
    the storyline makes me want to watch more and cheer for the good guys and help them get their friend back.
    i liked some of the music but some of the others i wasnt really liking, i mean it was okay but its like those " i dont hate it and i dont like it " type of thing.
    i ...

    Saint Seiya the Lost Canvas is a really good anime
    Alright, this is the prequel to the other Saint Seiya series that came out a long time ago. This tells of what happened in the previous War between the two Gods, Athena and Hades, and the relationship all the characters had with one another. It even gives you insight of Dokho's and Shion's past, so you know how they came to be the protectors they became in the other series. ;D

    Anyway, ...

  • Succeed to bring back good memories + being fresh
    I am a fan of the original Saint Seiya, and I love this "prequel", maybe even more, as it uses what was so great in the first serie (the mix of mythology, great fights, design of the characters ...) but also add some more complicated stories, more deep characters and many new elements that makes it different enought so that you don't fell like watching the same anime, but brings the nostalgy!! ...

    Interesting take on an good old classic
    As a new fan, I started watching this anime only recently. However, I am watching both this series and the original and it is a very interesting contrast. The action and adventure of the original series does not seem as pronounced in this 'prequel', but the story arc for the characters makes up for it. The original series had all of the action and fighting that we've have come to know and love ...

  • Awesome, Awesome, Awesome.
    Well, I'll just recommend you this.. Don't lose time reading this. Start watching it. It's awesome. Wll since I have to write a longer review to submit it, I'll say a couple things, Saint Saiya: Lost Canvas is a prequel to Saint Seiya. I watched the first one when I was little, I loved it. Now I started this one and it's just amazing, everything about it is awesome. The opening fits perfectly, ...

    kind of thought it was hit and miss
    The story line was a little slow, then took a turn for the better...then kind of dragged on, and on, and on...side battles, and side battles. The battles themselves were pretty awesome though. The other thing that kind of bothered me was the over dramatic dialog. Besides that it was awesome...i'll probably watch it again sometime.
